The Socialist Commune of Vestakin is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Kahnner Gildinsen with an even hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.629 billion Vestakinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carime. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Vestakinian economy, worth 151 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Tourism. Average income is 93,035 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, the best doughnut stores have been taken over by foreign police officers, and promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vestakin's national animal is the Roe Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vestakin is ranked 168,468th in the world and 53rd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Armed, with 0.26 Weapons Per Person.
